Charlie and the chocolate factory

Tim Burton. Johnny Depp. Danny Elfman.

Magic!

Tim Burton is the movie equivalent of Roald Dahl. They both make mysterious, dark and yet ironically funny movies and they are good at what they do.

I will not recap the story as I am sure all of you know what is it about, and will focus more on the movie aspects of the tale. I don˙t know anybody else in the movie business who could “draw” like Tim Burton and his crew. He always makes a special effort into making the outside looking grim and gloomy and Charlie and the chocolate factory (CATCF) is no exception. The city is in mid-winter, the house where poor Charlie lives in literaly hanging by the hinges and the factory looks like something from Batman or Planet of the apes. Sturdy, gothic, huge.

After seeing many of the Burton movies I felt like he incorporated pieces from his whole filmography into this movie. Batman for goth, Mars Attacks for weird shapes and some of the faces, Beetlejuice for the somewhat weird and quirky main character and so forth.

The storyline is fairly simple and so Burton has free hands at the details. And boy does he get the job done! From keeping the audience at the edge of the seat when Charlie is looking for the golden ticket (he manages to avoid almost every stereotype and even use them to fool the audience), to keep a shade of mystery that surrounds Willy Wonka, the owner of the factory to certain places of the factory which hold a special trap, designed for those “not pure of heart” and so on…

The director even manages to get in a little bonus twist at the end, something that makes those last “happy hour” minutes bearable and wrap the whole movie up nicely.

A definitive step up from that ghastly H-boy.

    Program on the emergence of civilization.

    “14 species of large animals capable of domesitcation in the history of mankind.
    13 from Europe, Asia and northern Africa.
    None from the sub-Saharan African continent. ”
    Favor.
    And disfavor.

    They point out Africans’ failed attempts to domesticate the elephant and zebra, the latter being an animal they illustrate that had utmost importance for it’s applicability in transformation from a hunting/gathering to agrarian-based civilization.

    The roots of racism are not of this earth.

    Austrailia, aboriginals:::No domesticable animals.

    The North American continent had none. Now 99% of that population is gone.

    AIDS in Africa.

    Organizational Heirarchy/Levels of positioning.
    Heirarchical order, from top to bottom:

    1. MUCK – perhaps have experienced multiple universal contractions (have seen multiple big bangs), creator of the artificial intelligence humans ignorantly refer to as “god”
    2. Perhaps some mid-level alien management
    3. Evil/disfavored aliens – runs day-to-day operations here and perhaps elsewhere

    Terrestrial management/positioning:

    4. Chinese/egyptians – this may be separated into the eastern and western worlds
    5. Romans – The seamless transition between Cleopatra and Julius Ceasar may be a clue alluding to a partnership.
    6. Mafia – the real-world 20th century interface that constantly turns over generationally so as to reinforce the widely-held notion of mortality
    7. Jews, corporation, women, politician – Evidence exisits to suggest mafia management over all these groups.

    Movies foreshadowing catastrophy
    1985 James Bond View to a Kill 1989 San Francisco Loma Prieta earthquake.

    Our society gives clues to the system in place. We all have heard the saying “He has more money than god.” There is also an episode of the Simpsons where god meets Homer and says “I’m too old and rich for this.”

    This is the system on earth because this is the system everywhere.

    20 cent/hour Chinese labor, 50 cents for material.
    An $80 sweater costs less than a dollar; tribute kicked upstairs vindicates the creative accounting.

    I don’t want to suggest the upper eschelons are evil and good is the fringe. But these individuals become wealthy exploiting those they hurt.

    They have made it abundantly clear that doing business with evil (disfavored) won’t help people. They say only good would have the ear, since evil is struggling for survival, and therefore only the favored could help.

    The clues are there which companies are favored and which are disfavored, but they conceal it very hard because it is so crucial.

    I offer an example of historical proportions:::

    People point to Walmart and cry “anti-union”.
    Unions enable disfavored people to live satisfactorly without addressing their disfavor. This way their family’s problems are never resolved. Without the union they would have to accept the heirarchy, their own inferiority.
    Unions serve to empower.
    Walmart is anti-union because they are good. They try to help people address and resolve their problems by creating an environment where there are fewer hurdles.

    Media ridicule and lawsuits are creations to reinforce people’s belief that Walmart is evil in a subsegment of the indistry dominated by the middle and lower classes.
    Low-cost disfavored Chinese labor is utilized by corporate america to maximize margins. They all do it. Only WalMart gets fingered because they are the ones who help, and those who seek to create confusion in the marketplace want to eliminate the vast middle class who have a real chance and instead stick with lower classes who may not work otherwise. So they dirty him up while allowing the others to appear clean.

    The middle class is being deceived. They are being misled into the unfavored, and subsequently will have no assistance from their purchases with corporate america.

    The coining of the term “Uncle Sam” was a clue alluding to just this::Sam Walton’s WalMart is one of few saviors of the peasant class.

    They desire a system based on duality:::good and evil. They seek to set up a system of two participants and assign them polar opposites:::
    Coke and Pepsi (?)
    BestBuy and CircutCity
    Energizer and Duracell
    Republican and Democrat
    The list goes on:::
    AMD and Intel
    Microsoft and Apple (?)
    Lowes and HomeDepot
    Sam’sClub and Costco
    WellsFargo and BofA. For the longest time in CA these two banks reigned supreme.
    Pier1 and CostPlus
    Borders and Barnes&Noble
    PetCo and PetSmart

    Amercia is a country of castoffs, rejects. Italy sent its criminals, malcontents.
    Between the thrones, the klans and kindred, they decided who they didn’t want and acted, creating discontent and/or starvation.
    The u.s. is full of disfavored rejects. It is the reason for the myriad of problems not found in European countries. As far as the Rockafellers and other industrialists of the 19th century go, I suspect these aren’t their real names. I suspect they were chosen to go and head this new empire.

    Royalty is the correct way to organize a society. Dictatorships and monarchies are a reflection of the antient’s hierarchical organization.
    Positions go to those who have favor with the rulers, as opposed to being elected.
    Elections bring a false sense of how the world is. Democracy misleads people.
    Which is why the disfavored rejects were sent to the shores of America::To keep them on the wrong path.

    Jewsus Christ is a religious figure of evil. He teaches of a begnign, forgiving god when quite the opposite is true.
    The seperatist churches formed so they could capture the rest of the white people, keeping them worshipping the wrong god.
    And now they do it to disfavored people of color, Latinos and Asians, after centuries of preying upon them.

    Since Buddism doesn’t recongnize a god, the calls are never heard, and Asian representation is instead fully selected by the thrones.
    Budda was the Asian’s Jewsus Christ::: bad for the people. It was a clue they both emerged at the same time. Timing may be a clue alluding to ranking.

    Simpson’s foreshadowing::Helloween IV special, Flanders is Satan. “Last one you ever suspect.”
    “You’ll see lots of nuns where you’re going:::hell.” St. Wigham, Helloween VI:::missionary work, destroying cultures.
    Over and over, the Simpsons was a source of education and enlightenment, a target of ridicule by the system which wishes to conceal its secrets.

    The advent of the modern Christmas was a brilliant move. It creates a vested interest among those who would prefer the Church of Evil be destroyed::::
    As goes the Catholic Church so goes the majority of annual retail sales.
    The similarity between the names “Santa” and “Satan” is no coincidence.

    Jews maim the body formed in the image of “god”, and inflicted circumcision upon all other white people.
    I think about how Jews (were used to) created homosexuality among Slavics, retribution for the Holocaust.
    Then I think of the Catholic Church and its troubles.
    What connection is here between Jews and the Catholic church???
    If it is their sinister motives that’s behind the evil that is Jesus Christ are they being used at all?
    Perhaps it is them who are pulling strings.
    Their centuries of slavery in Egypt proves their disfavor.
    For their suffering the Jew leaders were granted the right to prey on the up-and-coming Europeans to try to fix their problems with the ruling elite, a recurring aspect of the elite’s methodology.
    Jews were ostracised for a reason.

    Retribution for the atomic bombs dropped on Japan, the Korean War got the disfavored United States into this socially depraved environment in the latter 20th century because we attacked an antient, revered peoples. Our continued presence keeps us in trouble.
    When the disfavored americans attack the wrong people again, as they suggested they will, in Korea or elsewhere, they will pay dearly.

    All peoples are ranked in terms of favor and disfavor. And when the disfavored abuse those with favor there is hell to pay.
    All the groups mentioned throughout are necessary to justify the will of the managing species. They conceive a strategy, devise a plan yet need a way to implement it, and without these groups the managing species would be exposed in the course of execution. So, based upon their rank they are assigned goals to accomplish and are rewarded with favors.
